Lifting the Veil from USB Type-C Bus

Since the launch in 1995, Universal Serial Bus (USB) has proved itself as the most successful ever computing interface. Nowadays tens of billions of electronic devices are connected together due to it. It goes without saying that this bus has outlived a few modifications, each distinguished by higher speed and reliability. Thus, today the community is able to revel in a completely new modification – USB Type-C – that forecasts a lot privileges of connectivity process. Let’s see what users will get with a new bus.



Layout and Connectivity


In physical terms, Type-C is a bit larger than USB 2.0 Micro-B but a bit tinier than binary USB 3.0 Micro-B, featuring 8.34x2.56 mm. Such dimensions enable its connection to the devices of any type, including the thinnest smartphones/tablets. The oval-shaped socket houses 24 contact outputs (to compare: USB 3.0 sockets feature only 9 outputs).


The most outstanding physical peculiarity of Type-C is a symmetric connector that …

Cooler Master Eisberg 240L Prestige: Liquid Cooler with Advanced Facilities

The majority of liquid cooling systems are developed with the implementation of practically identical hardware base. Nonetheless, Cooler Master stepped forward with introducing a cooler that involves the components of a higher level and that can be supplemented by some other components (if necessary). Codenamed Cooler Master Eisberg 240L Prestige, this model is an efficient tool in the hands of true cooling connoisseurs. Still, in order to judge about its efficiency, it’s necessary to review it from different angles.



Specifications


Liquid cooler Eisberg 240L Prestige features the following specifications:


1. heatsink: dimensions – 276x125x30 mm, material – copper;

2. pump: dimensions – 65.7x66.66.9 mm, bearing type – CFF1, performance – 400 liters/hour, nominal voltage – 12 V, noise level – up to 25 dB, recorded power consumption – 6.2 W, MTBF – 50.000 hours;

3. waterblock: material/structure – copper/micro-channel JetStream structure, …

GeIL Introduces Memory Module Series Evo Leggera

GeIL has lately introduced a new series of memory modules, codenamed Evo Leggera. According to the words of the manufacturers, this series is ready to demonstrate the utmost performance in combination with the low-profile VELOCE radiators which cannot stop the users from installing huge CPU coolers. Evo Leggera represents an optimal solution and improved functionality in one product. The series includes modules of 1333 MHz to 2800 MHz frequencies compiled in two- and four-channel kits.



Evo Leggera is equipped with advanced low-profile heat dispensers 'Leggera' developed with the implementation of Maximum Thermal Conduction and Dissipation technology. This technology ensures efficient cooling activity with the standard module heights. Memory modules Evo Leggera are compatible practically with all newest logics kits, involving Intel Z77 platform. This expands the versatility of the series.


To continue, it should be mentioned that all models in the series have undergone tough …
